"countmlbjam:" (nice moniker) ...yes, thank god for AUDs and the thousands of people who poured tens-of-thousands of dollars and countless hours into preserving these treasures. ....I must admit that when I heard that "China Doll" earlier tonight it practically tore my heart out... had to take a break after that one.

Are you familiar with that Portland, ME version I keep preaching about: 1985-03-31? ...even the band had turned themselves inside-out after Jerry's solo's: they did the "inverted 'Playin in the Band'" post drums.

"Eugene '78" you mention is that wild Jerry solo, I reckon(?) What's it called?

Yeah, "thanks for the AUDs" and thanks for contributing posts to keep this space alive,

Ah, Sunshine Day Tripper... it never occurred to me why they did that song. Not that the GD versions compare well...but this DT was ok.

Was this show part of a 2-day stand?

spacedface: yes, this was the first of two nights. When they opened with that "Music Never Stopped," I remember thinking, "..oh, man, THIS show is gonna be something different --- for good or ill."

Very, Very, Heavy-duty East coast energy in a smaller-than-usual arena ...adrenaline still rushing through the veins from the Maine State Troopers pullling over almost every car on Rt. 95 ("..huh, Mr. Trooper? "Grateful What?" ...no clue; I'm on a business trip. How far to Sanford, Sir?"

So, spacedface, I can't find anybody to confirm that they listened to these two Jerry solo's. Did you? It was one of the only "GD" shows (over 350+) that I witnessed Jerry walk up to the microphone before the encore and actually "thank" the audience. [How about the crowd during the post-Space solo(?)] ....and I swear it sounds like Weir messed with the lyrics of "Day Tripper" for just one line.....typical Weir stuff....not worth even trying to find.

Sorry about the long post; got no painkillers and I need something to kill the pain,

The AUD is good, esp with the bigger ambience in Day Tripper, but I do prefer the SBD for Space and Playing. Oh yeah, a thank you isn't common.

I'm more in a '68 or '73 moods lately so '85 isn't holding my attention as much these days.

spacedface: I understand. The brethren here re-introduced me to the 1968, 1970, and 1973-1974 "Grateful Dead." No words to describe the experience. It's intense how much the keyboards had an effect on the overall texture of their performances ....

Later,

He Live's:
I needed that.... It is an overcast, grey "Holy Thursday" morning here in Boston ...and I haven't opened the curtains yet to see what it's like outside.... I needed that more than you'll ever realize...


Thank You Kindly,
